After giving us some background on the inspiration for the collection, Virgil Abloh has unveiled his upcoming Off-White Fall/Winter 2015 collection. He has spoken in the past about his transition from his Pyrex imprint, and this latest collection is just further indicative of his move from the street to the runway.
The collection is titled “Don’t Look Down,” and while Abloh did draw upon his own childhood memories of skiing in Wyoming, this collection isn’t all about the great outdoors. Instead, it works to compare, contrast, and mash-up the styles of both a mountaineer and a Wall Street financier type, who are both faced with the tasking of “climbing,” be it a mountain or a corporate ladder. The pieces range from peacoats and parkas, to letterman jackets and a fishnet jersey, and seamlessly blend a variety of fabrics and treatments, from patchwork blanket coats sourced from a centuries-old French fabric mill to T-shirts illustrated by New York-based artists Othelo Gervacio.
Virgil also shared on his Instagram that he would be debuting an Off-White furniture line later today, adding yet another title to his ever-growing list that already includes designer, DJ, creative director, architect, and civil engineer.
